RE: [IP] HEY ANTONIO 508 meltdown aka your mail



I don't think the analogy to a car is very strong.

 My health, and even life, hour-by-hour, depends on the continous operation of
my pump. I don't
 expect my car to go 4 years without repair and downtime. While I've had my pump
swapped out twice
(once for no good reason, once for a sensor failure), I've had no downtime.

When my pump goes out of warrantee, I want a new one.

 Anyway, the cost of the pump is only about 1/3 or so of the cost over those 4
years. Supplies,
insulin, test strips...

As long as the insurance is willing to pay for a replacement after 4 
years, what is the problem?
